Activities on Lake Garda

Lake Garda is a playground for young and old. There are so many ways to be active. We have tried many things and always leave our comfort zone to take on new challenges. Of course, safety is always our top priority. On Lake Garda there are many opportunities for outdoor activities suitable for all ages and interests. These include:

Hiking: The landscape around Lake Garda is ideal for hiking, with many marked routes and breathtaking views.

Cycling and mountain biking: Lake Garda is also a popular destination for cyclists, with many well-maintained bike paths. Especially mountain biking is very popular, there are many signposted tours with great trails.

Water sports: Lake Garda is a popular destination for water sports, especially for sailors, surfers and kite surfers. There are also opportunities for swimming, diving and
stand-up paddling
. What’s also cool: in some places you can rent a motorboat (you don’t need a license for that) and cruise on the lake :-). Water sports for us also include the
Canyoning
which is actually a mixture of climbing and water sports.


Climbing and via ferrata (via Ferrata):
Near Lake Garda (for example, in Arco) there are many opportunities for climbing and via ferrata. These are suitable for both beginners and experienced climbers. There are climbing routes and via ferratas of various degrees of difficulty.


Other activities:
Lake Garda has an incredible amount to offer. Many of our activities do not fit into any particular category. Just take a look, there is something for everyone 🙂

We love trips to other places around the lake. Or special events like paragliding. Or self-guided tours with the Vespa. Or visiting the small towns around the lake. These are usually worth seeing and often worth a separate article. Just take a look and be surprised!
